Jurgen Klinsmann has always been a popular name in the coaching rumor mill and, just a few months after leaving the U.S. Men’s National Team, his name has resurfaced again with links to a major job in his home country.
According to German outlet Bild, Klinsmann is one of three contenders to become manager of Bayer Leverkusen. The club’s former manager, Roger Schmidt, departed this past weekend while Tayfun Korkut has been named boss until the end of the season.
A potential move would see Klinsmann reunite with sporting director Rudi Voller, his former Germany teammate, in his first club coaching job since departing Bayern Munich in 2009.
Included among the other possible candidates is David Wagner, who is currently in charge of Huddersfield Town. The former U.S. Men’s National Team forward has the club on a push for promotion in the English Championship, where they currently sit in third place.
The third candidate is reportedly Hoffenheim’s Julian Nagelsmann, who has led the club all the way to fourth in the Bundesliga this season.
